The big news this morning is that Newcastle are trying to get a deal done at £8M for Norwich City winger Jacob Murphy and if we can get the 22 year-old England U21 International in for that price it would be a good deal.
There are other PL clubs after the youngster but the good news is that he wants to join Rafa on Tyneside.
Newcastle are hopping to get this deal done by Friday’s first preseason friendly game against Hearts at Tynecastle.

Newcastle are also trying to get a deal done for free agent Jesus Navas of Manchester City and there’s a decent chance we can get Navas in this week too – we hope so.
Here’s some typical comments this morning from Newcastle fans who still want one signing this week – maybe even two?

I reckon there’ll be some kind of breakthrough with our transfers today. Lots of talk about a transfer in by Friday #NUFC

Would definitely take Lucas Perez from Arsenal. Surprised there’s no link #nufc

Confident of some players coming in before the Hearts game! Hopefully that will stop some of the negativity #NUFC
